I just bought a new Asus laptop K56cb with Win 8 64bit. (intel i7 and 12gb ram)
I was dismayed to find that a lot of my plugins were not available in Cubase 7 64 bit mode so I reinstalled the 32bit version.
Things were going great until I started getting peak load problems after I opened a project that seemed fine earlier during the day. I had been away at work for a few hours.
It was my first project so I had nothing else to test it against.
It only had two VSTs and a reverence. So hardly anything going really. No audio tracks.
On my first playback the computer was nearly choking to death with and popping and ripping noises all through the project. Nothing like this happened earlier during the day.
I started a fresh project and just filled it with wav files and the same Vsts and reverence and could not get it to fall over.
I went back to my faulty project an hour later and that too was fine.
I think Win 8 is/was doing something in the background?
The computer is only two days old and it has been maddening with all the updates and hijacking me for 30 minute restarts and configs…
I read a lot of people here are having rock solid performance with Win 8 and Cubase 7.
Is there any advice available for setting up Win 8 for Cubase 7?
I can’t seem to find a lot of info and also I seem to get more results on this forum with a Google search than a forum search. When I searched “Logical editor” the other day I got mostly posts with the word logical and very few about the editor…
I love Cubase. Been a long time user and this is the first time I have ever posted. Not sure I like Win 8 so much but I’d be happy to go and buy win 7 if I thought that would help…
edit ps I have updated to the latest version of Cubase
